`I love people that make an effort; the old woman in the supermarket with the frilly leopard-print outfit on, that's who I want to look at and follow around.' Alice Hawkins
Displaying an uncommon flair for storytelling that imbues each image with a sense of the sublime, Alice Hawkins's work explores the importance of individuality, role play, dressing up, fantasy and playfulness, all of which have become hallmarks of her career. Her extended series of stylized `fashion portraits' around the world question and ultimately celebrate beauty and the representation of those outside of the mainstream. Her photographs for some of the world's leading fashion magazines document men and women found on `road trips' in far-flung locations. For these, Hawkins works with friends, people she sees on the street or locals whose particular style or appearance she has sought out (and who often become friends), rather than fashion models. Organized by location and interspersed with short contributions from some of Hawkins's key mentors and collaborators, Alice's Adventures is a mesmerizing and highly original visual journey that will inspire those interested in a fresh, contemporary approach to fashion and photography.
